now look, I'm getting on a bit, 62 on Sunday, but I think that, many years ago, I heard that elephant tusks are very long teeth?

Elephants' tusks are just reeaaally long teeth.
I think horns are supposed to be on an animal's head though.
Elephant Ivory is constructed the same as a tooth. It has enamel on the surface and grows like a tree in concentric circles. So it is considered a tooth not a horn.
They seem to be used more as horns, than for grinding food up. Just my 2 cents.
